I wonder if anybody else here got this phenomenon

when I think about certain things that I did in the past or certaint things that happened in the past I am feeling as if it was not really me who experienced it . I have an "how did I even survive this" kind of feeling with some unpleasant time periods and also a feeling as if the things I experienced are like a movie and as if it is not my own body which is right here at this moment having been "there" at those times . basically as if I didnt do those things ....is it really the same body ? was I really walking/talking/doing stuff at that moment of memory ?

weird as fuck

Before I had DP I felt as if I was in an autopilot mode, where everything was done automatically. In DP it's almost like I've realised the facade behind the thing called "freewill". Your mind just makes up it's own consciousness, and just like manually breathing disrupts something that is meant to be automatic, realising your consciousness is, in my opinion, the root cause of DP.

I think what I am trying to say is, before DP, I never realised my existence, I never took a second to think about why I'm here alive ect... That realising of you being "alive" is what disrupts something that's meant to be automatic.

Yes I agree but that doesnt explain the phenomenon I am talking about . I basically feel as if I am not the person who was present at the time/place I have memories about . it is very odd
